Location: Dublin, Ireland
Client: National Paediatric Hospital Development Board
The New Children’s Hospital in central Dublin will be a world-class facility for children and young people in Ireland in need of specialist and complex care. The 165,000m² oval pavilion will give the hospital an instantly recognizable and friendly identity. Its form alludes to Dublin’s best-known civic spaces and buildings, grounding the new building in its context. A central “floating garden” will elevate the importance of nature within the therapeutic environment.
